People throughout the Brookline area rely on Dental Partners of Brookline — and our highly trained periodontists — to deliver top periodontal care. Periodontal diseases are serious bacterial infections that destroy the attachment fibers and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth. Left untreated, these diseases can lead to tooth loss or other medical conditions like cardiovascular problems and complications for diabetics and pregnant women. Periodontal disease is sometimes hard to recognize because there is often no pain, and there may not be any bleeding, redness, or swelling.
Root scaling and planning, also called a deep cleaning, are non-surgical procedures in which the Dental Partners of Brookline periodontal team remove the plaque and tartar from below your gum line. The tooth root surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with specially designed instruments. If you’re experiencing bleeding, redness, or swelling in your gums, don’t wait until your periodontal disease becomes worse. The knowledgeable team of periodontists at the Dental Partners of Brookline can diagnose and propose a successful periodontic treatment plan.
